International Survey: Philippines is the most Godly country in the World – Chicago

As published in the Washington Post, it shows that the Philippines is the most Godly country in the world with never fading faith and continuously believing and making God as the center of each lives.

Belief in God is slowly declining in most countries around the world, according to a new poll, but the truest of the true believers can still be found in developing countries in the Christian worlds and Catholic societies in the Far East.

The "Beliefs about God Across Time and Countries" report, released Wednesday (April 18, 2012) by researchers at the University of Chicago, found the Philippines to be the country with the highest belief, where 94 percent of Filipinos said they were strong believers who had always believed.

The Philippines is the home of the continuously emerging new Christian religions, the home of the highest Catholics and the only strongest-faith-Christian country in Asia.

At the opposite end, according to the survey at just 13 percent, was the former East Germany where people are majority non believer.

"The Philippines is both developing and Catholic," said Tom W. Smith, who directs the General Social Survey of the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. "Religion, which is mainly Catholic, is very emotionally strong there."

The report covered data from 30 countries that participated in at least two surveys in 1991, 1998 or 2008.

Filipino's faith in God has said to be keeps creating miracles, healing wounds & diseases, changing lives, creating ample of blessings and riches to the believers as acclaimed by Christian testimonies how they got healed, how they succeeded their career,  how they acquire riches and how they live happily and how God changed their lives .

In 29 of the 30 countries surveyed in 2008, belief increased with age: Belief in God was highest for those ages 68 or older (43 percent), compared to 23 percent of those younger than 28.

While overall belief in God has decreased in most parts of the world, three countries — Israel, Russia and Slovenia — saw increases. The report said religious belief had "slowly eroded" since the 1950s in most countries of the world.

Atheism and unbelief was most prominent in northwest Europe and some former Soviet states, with the exception of majority-Catholic Poland (just 3.3 percent).
